Photograph of a gathering around Te Marae-O Hine believed to be early March 1927. The large crowd was here possibly to see the Duke and Duchess of York, whose visit on 3-4 March 1927 coincided with the week of Jubilee celebrations marking 50 years of the Borough of Palmerston North.

The wooden building on the east/Church Street corner (showing Nimmo's Piano Depot signage) was replaced with a concrete three storey building in 1929.
